The Fool: If you could go back in time and witness one event in history, what would you go back and see?
tomhoag: Lincoln's assasination -- morbid, I know -- but you asked


Dinosaurs. Ok, I know that's not an event, but I'd really like to see dinosaurs.
The Fool: Would you rather be remembered as a person, a legend, or a myth?
tomhoag: I'm already a person, soon to be a legend (if only in my own mind) -- so I guess I'll have to go for myth -- or maybe the subject of a ballad -- or folklore maybe -- i dunno
The Fool: What, in your opinion, are some of life's big mysteries?
tomhoag: Color Television. Regis & Kathy Lee. Standardized Tests. Small Children. Organic Chemistry. Music. Prime Numbers. My Dog.
The Fool: Given a second chance, what financial decision would you like to do over?
tomhoag: I would have contributed to an IRA (maybe not to the max amount) with some of the beer money I earned (and subsequently drank :) in college.
The Fool: Share with us your best money-saving secret -- cutting coupons, sneaking candy into the movies, shopping on Wednesday and pretending you're over 65?
tomhoag: I don't carry any coins in my pocket. Any coins that I accumulate during the day (e.g. change from lunch), I don't spend. At the end of the day, I put the coins in a bucket. Every 12 mos or so, I take it to my credit union (they count it for free!) and deposit the $250-300
The Fool: What's your favorite activity (within the realm of good taste)?
tomhoag: Sailing. I've found it to be exhilirating, relaxing and quite enjoyable.
The Fool: Make a confession.
tomhoag: I tried to time the market on AOL. It didn't work. I've learned my lesson and now I've moved on.
The Fool: What's your favorite movie, and why?
tomhoag: The Princess Bride. My name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to die.

Harold & Maude -- you gotta do your own thing.
The Fool: What's been your best investment to date, and how did you discover it?
tomhoag: Probably SUNW -- but that might be considered cheating, I'm purchasing through an ESPP.
The Fool: Do you have a favorite company or stock which the worldwide Foolish community should know about -- and why?
tomhoag: HD -- I spend way too much there and others may as well benefit from my expendetures too. (I'm an HD DRIPer)
The Fool: List some of your favorite websites, with running commentary where appropriate. (Please provide the URLs, too.)
tomhoag: www.quicken.com for other financial information.
www.fairmark.com for tax information
www.ebay.com for bargan hunting and the occasional jetison of stuff I no longer want/need
